Friday Round Up - 19 August, 2016

This week on Friday Round Up we celebrate two world days - World Humanitarian Day and World Photography Day, both on 19 August. It seems apt that these 'days' fall on the same date as photography has been concerned with humanitarian issues since its nascent years. Also Friday Round Up features the 10th edition of SP-Arte/Foto, which opens in São Paulo next week and applications are open for the inaugural Philip Jones Griffiths Award.

World Humanitarian Day in Pictures

‘One picture is worth a thousand words. 
Yes, but only if you look at the picture and say or think the thousand words.’ 
William Saroyan

This photograph from TIME magazine is, to me, truly devastating. On a day when the world is to celebrate humanitarianism, this photograph serves as a potent reminder that on a daily basis innocent lives are transformed in an instant. Shame on this world and those who have the power to stop this insanity.
